Wed’s School of Thought was a blast. We had 42 people attending. Much of the discussion focused on the idea of Critical Mass within an Arcology and we considered the various ways in which such a definition could be defined.
In particular I suggested that we might consider the idea that there are really three kinds of effects:
- Rural – provides important aspects to society in terms of open space and communion with nature
- Urban – enables the coming together of forces in society and civilization that enable innovation and evolution to improve quality of life as well as humn experiences.
- Suburban – Transition zone between urban and rural.
The idea is that there is no perfectly clear right or wrong. Rather the ideal is to minimize transport to enable the most frugal and effective use of resources.
